Hardcore Gamer: Konami’s Japanese site has revealed that P.T., the “Playable Teaser” for Silent Hills will be taken off of PSN on April 29.
Since I doubt we'll get the silent hills game developers should note what P.T did and follow in it's footsteps. The demo is a perfect example of how a horror game should be done.
Who knows. E3 is right around the corner, we may have more light shed on the situation then
Unfortunately with all that's been going on with Konami, its production has probably been halted. :/ I really hope it hasn't though. I'm glad that I have this masterpiece of a horror teaser/game downloaded to my PS4. It shouldn't be affected by this hopefully.
@white After all that positive reception received for PT no company in their right minds would announce anything on its potential hiatus or cancellation at the years biggest games expo. Wait for silence and avoidance on the matter from Konami come E3 if the project is indeed on permafrost.
Except for the fact that the last puzzle makes no sense, and it's still not exactly clear how/why it is done the way it is.
Alien Isolation already answered that, its awesome.
Its on its way to my mailbox. Cant wait to put on my elite 800 headphones and play this puppy! I've heard and read the best things about AI but Japanese horror games like Silent Hills are a different kind of beast than western horror...a very very disturbing kind of beast!
ALien isolation is completely different from what we were going to get here.
Games involving Del Toro seem to be cursed.
One is bad luck, two is a coincidence, three is a pattern. Hopefully his third try will be successful for the sake of him and all of us.
But not how a Silent Hill should be. Anyone who played the first 3 Silent Hill games knows it's about psychological pain and nightmares, not jump scares in first person
There are only 2 "jump scares" in p.t. (dying and when she throws the windowpane over the balcony), and the trailer they released for silent hills didn't have any. After playing p.t., I think first person is the best for horror. Better immersion.

Gold star for that man inbound.
Actually they said they'll remove it at some point when they first released it (people assumed it would be a way shorter time). So it doesn't necessary have to do anything with current events, but it could of course
The final proof that core gamers rule nothing.
And in reading this sad statement and all the news within 4 months and some plus time I go to sleep wary wondering about my wallet and hobby.
Gamers have nothing to do with internal conflict within konami.
will this being delisted erase it from my console, or my "Library"?
Quick Answer - "a7xgemini + If you have downloaded it, you own it forever and can re-download as many times times as you want using the same PSN ID you got it from originally." Boring Answer - When Gran Turismo HD released with a dozen cars and a track as a teaser, it was later removed from the PSN store less than 12 months later. I downloaded it back when that initial demo was available, and I was able to re-download it using an alternate PS3 6 years after it was removed. If Sony intend to erase P.T., it would be a ***k*n shame. It's a different story with Polyphony Digital and Kojima Studios. Even though H. Kojima has been with Sony just a couple of years shorter than K. Yamauchi, Kojima decided to go all multi-plat a decade ago (no fanboy-"ism", just messing). That would, or could, be the only explanation for neutering a teaser such as P.T. I mean, holy hell, it was an amazing concept to... conceive. The reveal of Del Toro and Reedus with Kojima leading. Just like the first time watching Ifrit slam a meteoroid down toward those stupid venus flytrap-looking things. I felt INCREDIBLE!!!!! Still, I don't think they'd be able to manage erasing it? I wouldn't know if it's possible to remove it off of systems. GT HD likely wasn't an exception, so I would like to say that it's safe to say it will continue to be downloadable using the original account.
It is Konami removing the demo....
I still have the Gran Turismo hd, and MGS4 demo's, problem is, I have to drill down past over 2400 items from my download list to get to them. 😧>_<😩 Gateway MT6706 2008
@kingPoS Agreed. I wish Sony would add a filter/search to the download list. Through the PSN website storefront my download list is over 40 pages and 1000 items (even worse when browsing on the Vita or PS3). That said, I still have access to LOTS of the stuff I've bought, but apparently some things have been permanently delisted for some people (seems to be mostly PSOne titles). I can understand PSOne titles being removed for compatibility issues, but if that was the case for them being permanently removed owners of said titles should receive some sort of compensation for no longer having any access to that specific content when the rest of the service is still running without issue.
No it won't
They could potentially pull the license and it would stop working. Not saying they are planning to do that in this case
That's probably what I was trying to get at in this circumstance with this unfortunate situation. It's two very different situations (after hearing Silent Hills won't come to fruition an hour ago). Konami. What in the hell. On a lighter note, rainbows! Wait, actually, this... "hells_supernova + 16h ago It is Konami removing the demo...." Konami "shared" Metal Gear with Sony at the beginning, so I misinterpreted it. With PD, they're a full-on first-party developer directed by K. Yamauchi. I have to say, thanks for the post uth11.
If you have downloaded it, you own it forever and can re-download as many times times as you want using the same PSN ID you got it from originally.
Are you sure we would be able to re-download it after they delete the game from PSN?.
It's usually deleted from the public directory 'aka' the psn store, the games that truly disappeared, were generally titles that hackers exploited. Case in point, I can still download TMNT Re-shelled or MVC2 again any time I want. Gateway MT6706 2008
Yes, more than likely you can. Quite a few games have been removed from PSN/XBL but you still can download it again as it still can exist on their server, just not up for people to see and download if they didn't before it was taken down. Lot's of disagrees from people who have no idea how this works but want to join in anyways.
I'd hate to think this game is dead. If Monolith would just make Condemned 3 that could do just nicely. Loved number 2!
Doesn't mean Kojima won't make a spiritual successor, but that's the wrong term for a game that has never been released. Perhaps we can call it the "end-product manifest"?
It's time to download it if you didn't. Silent Hills had an amazing potential, sadly.
Agree, everyone should give it a try. To anyone out there that's interested but doesn't have a PS4 at the moment, all you need to do if you have a PSN account is access the PlayStation Store website and "buy" it from there (it is free). That way it will be linked to your account and you may have a shot at downloading it later when/if you get a PS4.
Thanks for the heads up! Don't own a Ps4 yet so this is awesome.
Lol, I said a similar thing up above and got disagrees. Meh, maybe you worded it better than I did.
@a7xgemini The point of my comment is to let people know they don't need to have a PS4 to link the game to their account, they only need a PSN account and access to the PlayStation Store website. Something that Sony should really advertise, as it is a great feature. It also works with PS+ games, if anyone is wondering. In your comment, you mention that you can link the game to your account and download it later, but not that you can do it from the website. That said, I still don't think your comment merits disagrees. Some people did agree with you, so hopefully you helped a fellow gamer out there, that's what matters.
Will it still be playable after it's took off store and you already have it downloaded on your Ps4?
Hulk sad :(
I have it downloaded. Still have friends And family who still need to shit their pants!!
This is a sad day for humanity...
FML! First the new Twin Peaks gets canceled and now this. I'm very depressed.
And so continues the slow death of gaming...
I was looking foreward to seeing something come from this...
What's with people saying the death of gaming and all this sensationalist stuff about digital games? This is just a demo, and with what's been going on at Konami, this doesn't fall under that category.
It can also happen with a full game. Your acting like full games can never be delisted but they can. Look what happened when Capcom lost the Marvel license.
ah, on that note; i bought marvel vs capcom 2 right before they removed it from the store and i can still download and play it to this day. gives me hope cause i dont own a ps4 yet, but your damn right i went and downloaded it lol hopefully in 3 months i can play what i missed.
@Hollow Yeah as long as you buy it before it gets delisted there's no issue. But if you want to buy it now your out of luck. Thats one of the negative things that digital copies have.
Yes, it *can* happen, but like I purposefully said, this is a different situation. Games get taken off store shelves too.
I can happen with a full game where you can't download it after it's removed, but it's extremely rare. It's so rare I would have considered it untrue, but I do have a game that I can no longer download. I know it didn't just get lost in my download list, because it is quite literrally the first game I purchased digitally on my PS3, so it would be the last thing listed...after a piece of Ridge Racer DLC.
i want to play it but im not paying for psn for one demo
What are you talking about? It's free, you don't have to have PS+...
You fed him
^I hope it gave him a good laugh then cause his brain is clearly starving for oxygen.
if Silent Hills never happens, i hope someone like Shuhei Yoshida at least becomes inspired by this game (which is his) and gets one of the first party studios to make it work with Morpheus. In the event that kojima does leave konami, at least recruit him, or help him fund his studio, if he ever decides to make one PT was something that came out of left field and its just sad to see it go to waste
Thats what i'm thinking Im sure they can use the same concept as P.T without using any characters from the later known name Silent Hills. I just hope Sony is willing to make this happen ;)
Wonder how many people will skip metal gear now for mad max. Someone will take the idea on and make it a Vr game.
I'm sure most will buy TPP, because it is still Kojima's last MGS game 100%.
Guillermo del Toros game projects keep getting canceled! InSane and now Silent Hills. And its always because of Corporate company drama and bullshizz. It's freaking sad and pathetic.
If this game gets canceled, then Konami can do die in a ditch, for all I care
This is what Konami deserves for not giving us an HD side-scrolling Castlevania or Contra series. Now Metal Gear is dead too. Fans won't support MG without Kojima. Konami is dead, and good riddance. No new 2D Castlevania game since Order of Ecclesia? That was 7 years ago. RIP Konami.
I never thought I would ever sign an online petition but I would to save this game.
I got stuck on the changing torch light colours , never went back as it was too disturbing , I just like to glance at it in my library , just to know it's there....
Don't get the Konami business model anymore. So many great franchises just sit on the shelf not being utilized. People have mentioned the 2D Castlevania issue. The reason for no new 2D release in the past several years? No idea...maybe if the Assassin's Creed China experiment sells well it will inspire them? Japanese devs and publishers just seem to be shitting the bed these days. Square-Enix, Capcom, Konami, it's just not the glory days of the PS2 for these guys on consoles...too much focus on handheld/mobile. It's hurting core gaming.
Oh what the hell is going on ;C !? Why remove one of the best and most downloaded demo ever created, well at least on consoles. I didn't even know there was some period for it... has to be Konami's doing related to this recent stuff. Enough is enough Konami ;(! Download it now folks if haven't and play it. I was hoping for P.T. to release on PC also, but I guess it'll never happen. And then there's Silent Hills, my most anticipated horror game in very long time... Wonder what gonna happen to it in the end.
